Governor of Ohio Selected for
Chairman of Board by
SALARY $150,000 A YEAR
He Offered to Bny Out Hvde, but
"Was Refused Conference De
cides on Action of Direc
tors Meeting Today.
N'EW YORK, June 6. (Special.) Myron
T llerrick. Governor of Ohio, will be se
lected as the chairman of the Equitable
board. After consultation with persons
representing James H. Hyde, Governor
Hcrrlck loft 'the Waldorf-Astoria at 6
o'clock for his home in Cleveland. He
had assured his visitors that ho was will
ing to take hold of the Equitable at a sal
ary of $159,000 a year, providing he was
given absolute freedom in his control of
the society, and it was added that this
was assured and lie would be unhampered
in his management.
It was said tonight that Governor Hcr
rlck, as the representative of -a syndicate,
had made a liberal cash offer for Mr.
Hyde's stock holdings, so that, if alrans
fer were' made, the control of the society
would not only be vested in Governor
Herrjck, as chairman of the board, -with
plenty of powers, but in fact he would bo
in absolute control.
Hyde Declines to Sell.
The price offered was said to be in the
neighborhood of $5,009,000, or about $1,000,
000 more than Mr. Hyde was offered for
his control of the Equitable two years
ago, when a syndicate of Wall-street men
tried to buy out his interests. Mr. Hyde
declined Governor Herrlck's offer, but at
the same time proffered to him the newly
created office of chairman of the board,
which the Governor expressed his willing
ness to accept.
Choice May Be Unanimous.
There was a conference tonight, at
which Mr. Hyde was present with his
legal adviser, Samuel Untcrmeyer. There
was a full and free discussion of the
selection of a suitable man for the posi
tion of chairman of the board, and the
selection of GovcrnorHcrrick proved ac
ceptable to all who were in attendance.
At the meeting of the board of directors
at 1 o'clock tomorrow afternoon Governor
Hcrrlck probably will be unanimously de
cided upon as chairman, and a committee
will be appointed to wait on him and
' formally tender him the position.

NEW YORK, June 6. Three more
directors resigned today from the board

the present troubles of the society began.
The resignation of A. J. Cassatt, presi

Among the stories which gained circu

Henry C. Frick has boon offered a posi

York Life Insurance Company, that many
of the directors of the company have
asked him to join the board, and that he
Is seriously considering the offer.
Mr. Frick resigned as a director of the
Equitable last week when the report of
the investigating committee, of which lie
was the head, was not accepted by the
board of directors.
It Is understood that James H. Hyde

To a question nut to him by the cor

whether he was for war or peace, the

without the slightest hesitation:
"Most certainly I am for war. I am a

JAPAN IS READY FOR LONG WAR
May Be Means of Liberating Russia's
TOKIO, June 6. "If Russia prefers
to continue the war. Japan is willing
to meet the enemy's challenge," says
the Kokumln Shimbun, a leading paper
of this city, commenting on Russia's
apparent stubbornness in admitting that
the time has arrived to arrange for end
ing hostilities. It declares that, did the
responsibility rest upon Japan to decide
the question, the Japanese could not
afford to ignore the demands of other
countries for the cessation of hostili
ties, though based upon purely human
itarian principles. As the case stands,
however, says the Kokumln Shimbun,
it is the enemy who desires the in
definite protraction of hostilities, and
nothing prevents Japan from shearing
Russia of her military strength as she
has deprived her of her naval power.
In this way it would be possible to
liberate the Czar's stricken people,
who have long suffered from the op
pression of the autocracy, to restore
Independence to the Poles and Finns,
to establish a free state out of the re
maining portion of Russia and to
bridge the chasm dividing that country
from the powers. Japan, it adds, is
ready for any war programme, whether
for 20, 30 or 100 years.

CHICAGO. June 6. (Special.) A
Berlin cablegram to the Daily News
says: It has become known in Berlin
that the Czar and Grand Dukes have
decided to continue the war in the be
lief that the powers will intervene to
arrest Japanese pretensions. This de
cision Iras been taken at the suggestion
of Grand Duke Vladimir. It is pointed
out that the recommendations of peace
reaching Russia from all quarters,
especially from England and America,
constitute the best proof that the end

Jobhuntcrs began camping on Mayor
elect Lane's trail yesterday at early day
break. The new Mayor Has several fat
pi urns, at his disposal, and before he shall
take his seat next month he will be sore
pressed by plescekcrs.
But many of the hungry faithful had
cause to lament yesterday when they
started on their quest for Jobs; civil ser
vice rules were in the way of most of the
rich prizes, and others were fortified be
hind boards which the new Mayor cannot
discharge without making "a written re
port to the Council setting forth his rea
sons for such removal."
Among the Jobs protected by civil ser
vice are all those In the Fire Department,
thjasc under the Chief of Police. thoe in
the Street-Cleaning Department, thoce
under the City Engineer, those In the
Water Department under the Superin
tendent and the Chief Engineer, those
under the Park Board, the Poundmaster
and the Harbormaster.
Removals Must Be for Cause.
Removals from all such positions can be
made by the Mayor only for cauye. and
the persons thrust from their places have
the right under the charter to appeal to
the Civil Service Commission. The find
ings of the Commission roust be accepted
by the Mayor. Should the removal be ap
proved by the Commission, the new ap
pointee must be chosen from cllgiblcs who
have passed satisfactory examinations
under the Commission, and from none
Some additional policemen were recent
ly appointed by Chief Hunt, and until
they have had their positions six months
they are on probation and subject to re
moval, but unless the Civil Service Com
mission should consent to their dismissal
tholr successors could not be appointed
because the Commission could refuse to
offer any other eligible. This is a live
question now in the police force, and the
40 new policemen are shaking in their
boots. The officers who have been in the
service more than six months, however,
aver that they cannot be displaced so long
as they shall perform their duties faith
fully. The commission itself cannot be re
newed by the Mayor. He has power of
removal, but the power of appointing
new members under such circumstances
lies with the City Council. Inasmuch as
most of the new Councllmen represent
political beliefs different from those of
Dr. Lane's, the new Mayor could not
reconstruct the commission according to
his desires. One member of it. however,
he will appoint as soon as he shall come
Into office the successor of A. A. Court
ney, whose term will then expire. But
the other members. P. L. Willis and J.
W. Blain. will hold over.
New Mayor Not Omnipotent.
It Is therefore manifest that the new
Mayor will not be able to make much of
a feast for his brethren. Before the
present charter went Into effect, the
Mayor could put his followers into offices
of high and low degree as Mayor Pen
noyer did. But now that many of the
good places are held by men who cannot
be put out without cause, there Is walling
and gnashing of teeth among the Demo
cratic patriots. .
And another good place beyond the
reach of the faithful is that of secretary

$100 a month, now hold by O. L. McPbcr
son. who acts also as secretary to the
Mayor. The secretary Is appointed by
the civil-service commission. True Mayor
Lane wilP appoint one member of the
commission, but two others will hold
over and may thwart any purpose of
Democrats to gain possession of the sec

commission will be In the hands or the

The choir sang "God Give His Angels

carved on the cradle of the Crown
Prince. The congregation joined in
singing from the programme the fa

of the cathedral clergy standing near
him, began the service.
It is the privilege of the pastor,
according to the Lutheran rite, to read
either one of the several admonitory
addresses to the bridal couple or to make
one of his own. Dr. Dryander elected to
lay aside the book, taking as his subject
the book of Ruth, chapter 1, verses 16. and

will go," etc.
